Millerton Brunches On For The North East Community Center

Rachel Louchen reports from Millerton. Perfect weather, live music, great food… it’s no wonder the event saw such a good turnout. But of course, when the North East Community Center is involved, the tight-knit community of Millerton always shows up to give its support. So the excellent turnout for NECC’s fourth annual Chef & Farmer Brunch on Sunday, August 10 came as no surprise. Moved this year to Railroad Plaza in the heart of the town, the event saw many familiar faces who have attended in years past, as well as returning vendors like No. 9 Restaurant, John Andrews Restaurant and Copake Country Club, along with new supporters like Jacuterie and Chef’s Consortium. The Giving Tree returned this year to help sponsor and support NECC’s important food and social service programs for families, such as Share the Bounty Fresh Food Pantry, community cooking classes and a community garden.
